I have the same car and have changed the headlight swithc three (3) times. To verify disconnect the headlights electrical connectors use a 12V test light or volt meter turn on the headlights on low beam and make sure you have voltage on one terminal in both of the light connectors then switch to high beams and test again you should have voltage on a different terminal this verifies power to the lights if you only have power on one and none when you go to high beam you need a new headlight switch

Replace your headlights. Your brights are no longer working. There are 2 sets of lights in each headlight. One set for your dims and one set for your brights. It is time to replace the lights.

98 grand prix dashboard lights wont come on


I had a similar issue to yours recently. The PKG LIGHT fuse was out in the fuse block under the hood. I had no running lights, no instrument panel lights and rapid dinging when I open the door like an indicator of the headlights being left on. It is a 20AMP fuse in slot 37. There should be another fuse in one of your "spare" slots. Hope this helps.

Headlights went out on a 98 ford escort while driving


if both headlights went out at the same time, check your fuses. because high beams use more power than headlights, they are often on a separate fuse. if fuses are fine, replace the headlights.

I cant figure out how to change the driver's side headlight


You have two screws at the top of the trim cover. remove them and tilt top towards you and remove from slots at bottom.
There are four screws holding the ring around the lamp. spray them with solvent and remove them the rest is just unplug and plug back in don't put it back upside down. (use a really good new screwdriver and if screws on ring won't come out after soaking tap the back of the screwdriver with a hammer to break rust in threads)
